Some of the prices here were likely higher than what you can bargain for in Playa del Carmen, but due to storms we ran out of time and went here. The prices were better than the resort. Standard souvenir stuff. Couldn't believe how many needed their Starbucks from here. I loved getting away from some of that culture but it... More

My sister and I went shopping for souvenirs and cover ups and were very disappointed. The kiosks had mostly junk and the prices were higher than you would find down on 5th street or the other side streets. A lot of the items were even faded from being out in the sun all day. The boutiques were also expensive. We... More

I needed some new flip flops and as Plaza Playacar is very close to our hotel (Riu Palace) it is a more convenient option compared to fifth Avenue. If you need something in a hurry the likelihood is it will cater for your needs

We walked down to Plaza Playacar several mornings after breakfast and really enjoyed shopping in this little center just West of the Riu Palace Riviera Maya where we were staying. There were a few pushy salesmen, but nothing too bad at all. We also enjoyed having our picture taken with an adorable little monkey that hangs out each day in... More

Good place to shop if your staying in the nearby hotels, easier than going into town. Cute little stores, a Starbucks, a cheap chemist and convenience store, street artists and also a great place to book excursions for a better price than in the hotels!

Just what Playacar needs. A plaza with shops so close to all the resorts. Just a short walk away, you can buy souvenirs, sign up for tours or get a massage. Starbucks has free Wifi and stores to pickup anything you may have forgotten at home. Wont replace 5th ave. but will do in a pinch.

Like the walk down 5th st in the evening, not as hot as in the daytime. Lots to see, a little disappointed that we could not eat at Senior frogs cause they were preparing for a concert.
